Time2Skin – there are skiers of all types using our bindings, from beginners to freestylers. We have deliberately chosen NOT to offer a binding that goes above a DIN 12, but almost all skiers (99% or more, including most freestylers) will be fine on our bindings at settings below a 12. I have spent a fair amount of time explaining why our bindings work better than others at retaining skiers at lower DIN settings. There are still some of you who don’t want to believe this, but there are various engineering reasons for this, and plenty of evidence that it is the case in practice. Please visit (revisit) the video showing freestyler Alex Levin (KneeBinding Information Center) – one thing you might notice is that he was doing all his tricks set at DIN 8.5 (which is actually his recommended DIN as a Type III+) with no issues. Other freestylers have similar experiences. It is not uncommon for an aggressive freestyler to have a recommended DIN of 8, for example, who normally skis at an 11 or 12 on another binding, but who is fine on KneeBindings at 9 or 9.5. This is safer.
